Tell us about an internship or professional experience you've had. 

I had an internship at the Korean Embassy in Washington D.C this past summer. It was the most interesting experience I ever had. I did get to work with many diplomats and researchers through out the my time there. 

What do you plan to do when you graduate?

Well, I was planning to go back to Korea right after i finished college. However, due to the fact that I had the opportunity to apply for OPT , I decided to stay one more year. 

I'm currently studying International Studies and my next step is to work in a corporation or government agency where I will be working to bridge ties between my home country Korea and other regions.
